What To Do Tonight: Meet the Uptown Bums

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Interesting combination of bands tonight at Cafe Bourbon Street, 2216 Summit St. (I don't want to solely spotlight Bobo shows, but nobody else is doing rad weeknight shows this week, so there you go.) Visiting from down Texas way are The Uptown Bums, an organ-powered bunch of garage punks that remind me of Alabama's stellar Thomas Function. Joining them will be a local contingent that includes outrageous faux-Mormon garage greats Outer Spacist and that inventive crew of pop weirdos, Take No Damage. With a blindfold on I could tell you this costs $5 and starts at 10 p.m.
